HOT COUGAR ACTION: Cougars Wrap Up Spring Football

Washington State held their 15th and final practice of spring football Tuesday. It was an interesting, yet productive spring for WSU. While a number of players missed practice due to injury, it appears they were able to avoid losing multiple players to long-term injuries.

It wouldn't surprise me if in a few months we look back and say the emergence of Andrei Lintz was the biggest development of the spring session. Lintz started hot and maintained a high level of play throughout the practices. If I had to guess right now, I would say Lintz is in line for 80+ targets next season, quite the difference from the 11 he saw last season.

As far as the final practice goes, Christian Caple's recap blog post can be found here. We also have the usual three videos from the WSU Athletic department. Fall camp and in-season practices will be closed to the media, so these may be the final player interviews we see until postgame press conference begin.
